A new edition of White's 1951 account of his attempts to train a goshawk, which was an inspiration for and is featured in Helen Macdonald's prize-winning memoir "H Is For Hawk". White was the author of "The Once & Future King".
T. H. White (1906-1964) was born in Bombay, India, and educated at Queen's College, Cambridge. He was the author of twenty-six published books, but he is perhaps best known for his sequence of novels reimagining the Arthurian legend, referred to collectively as THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING, the fantasy MISTRESS MASHAM'S RESPONSE and THE GOSHAWK. He died at sea on his way home from a lecture tour and is buried in Piraeus, Greece.
